Would you buy a B&W DSLR?

No, it makes b&w harder with not so much extra benefits

Because color gives much more flexibility for b&w, achievable easily in post-process vs. by using b&w sensor and special filters. I think the AA is still needed, it is not color only issue.

I am a huge fan of B&W photography and the ability to create amazing landscapes with a red filter or beautiful portraits using a yellow filter. A B&W sensor would not require an antialaising filter or Bayer interpolation and allows the ability to use colored filters.

Would anyone buy a DSLR with a B&W sensor?
